Procedure Overview

Blepharoplasty is an eye surgery that can be carried out on the upper lid, lower lid, or both. If you are looking to improve the appearance of the eyelids or to get rid of the functional issues you have with your eyelids.

Surgery Age

Although the age of patients for this operation is generally over 40, we can operate on some patients at a younger age. In patients over the age of 40, the skin slackening and bagging eyes are most common, while in young people the most common issues are bags under eyes or hooding of the upper eyelid.

Operation Technique

In the upper eyelid surgery, the upper eyelid is operated on with local anesthesia. A portion of the skin is removed alongside part of the underlying muscle.. The inner and middle line fat pads are reached. If there is sagging in the tear gland it is hung up, it is then closed with sutures and the process is finished.

In the lower eyelid surgery, again is carried out under local anesthesia. Skin and muscle are removed then the inner, middle and also the outer oil packs are reached and some of the herniated oil packs are removed. Then excess muscle and a portion of the skin is removed. The skin is closed with  sutures and the process is finished.

Blepharoplasty

An ideal crease will be carefully measured and marked with a pen.
The procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia.
Starts with an incision on the upper eyelid.
Excess skin, some muscle and fat tissue will be removed, and creases will be defined with sutures.
Incisions will be closed with stitches that will need to be removed 5-7 days after surgery.

Results are permanent until you age to have more severe excess skin
Our technique may be a good option if you have excess skin, puffiness, or thick skin and if you are looking for a permanent result.

Recovery Period

Symptoms like pain, irritation, swelling, and bruising are temporary. Here are some tips to relieve irritated eyes:

Use cold compresses as recommended by your doctor usually every hour 10 minutes first 3 days is important.
Apply lubricating ointment or any other prescribed medications.
Wear sunglasses when outside until you’re fully healed.
Avoid exercising, swimming, and saunas for 2 weeks
Avoid scratching your eyes for 5-7 days
For either procedure, follow your surgeon’s discharge instructions. Antibiotics may be prescribed to protect against infection. Take them all, even if you feel fully healed. Be sure to report any signs of infection or post-op side effects immediately
